I've been feeding a stray black female cat since spring. On October 30th I was putting food out for her and accidentally stepped on her paw. Like a dummy I reached out and she bit me. I went to the Doctor the nest day and got a tetanus shot and put on Amoxicillin. I also went to the health dept. because I'm 65 and let my medicaid kinda slide, so I have no insurance to cover rabies vaccines for myself. They sent animal control out, and the officer basically said, if they take the cat they would have to put it down and test for rabies...or I could watch it myself for 10 days. I didn't want that, so I've decided to just keep feeding it outside on my porch. Tomorrow will be the 10th day. Last night I put the food out and the cat looked like she started to eat, but an hour later, the bowl of food was still pretty full. It was rainy and cold out, but she's always eaten it before. Today, she hasn't showed up at my door at all. I'm freaking out. Not sure what to do. I would have to borrow money from my nieces to get the series of rabies shots I need. I'm worried about myself, but also worried about the kitty. Winter is coming and I can't take this cat inside, even if the 10 day observation period is up tomorrow, I worry the cat might freeze to death. I need some advice from someone who deals with stray cats. I don't want me or the cat to die of rabies. Thanks.
